Quinacridone Gold

One color people have difficulty finding for my workshops is Quin Gold. It has been renamed Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold, and it is made by Golden. Don't be confused into thinking that this is a metalic paint....it ain't. It is crucial in creating some of the effects of aging (not refering to my rapidly graying hair). I mix it with just about everything. You can order it from Golden direct or you can usually find it at Michaels or other large art stores. http://www.goldenpaints.com/products/color/heavybody/colors/1301infopg.php

Also...begining late Spring...I'll be selling paint kits that have all the colors I use to create different looks.

I use nickle azo gold all the time too. I particularly like to use it as a base color and dab turquoise over it to give the effect of weathered copper.

Hey Michael!!

I had breakfast with you this morning. I was happily munching my honey nut cheerios watching you on Craft Lab doing your faboo poloroid shrines. You did a fantastic job and didn't misbehave even once (or maybe you did and it got edited out? hehee).

Bravo!!!
